Newcomer Somebody's Child has made waves in his native Ireland recently with his debut single. Now he releases his sophomore track "Toes", which deals with toxicity in relationships.
Somebody's Child nabbed Ross Dowling, who has produced for Indie staples like James Vincent McMorrow and Talos for "Toes." The production spins classic indie pop on its head and gives it a washed out ambience that is more reminiscent of jump-until-you-drop alt-rock than anything else.
“The song is about being in a controlling relationship," the singer says. "[It's about] knowing what needs to change, and finding the courage to stand up for oneself and going after what you really want despite what people may think or say about you.” The Irish singer/songwriter's lyrics and the subject matter give the upbeat, sun-soaked indie-pop a necessary gravitas, while minimalist guitar and the singer's infectious rasp create a nice juxtaposition in the track itself. You'll want to turn the volume up on this one.
